Default New Lowrance gear?

We can only surmise that Lowrance will be announcing new gear in the near future with the price drop that has just been announced on the HDS Gen3 units. What will it have and what would you like to see it have?

I believe HDS has a single video input. NSS has two.
I wonder if Ethernet video can be used.

That's what I'm hoping for... only reason I haven't purchased the 3D is because I don't want the hassle of having an external box to mount somehwere

All Elite Ti models come standard with CHIRP sonar across more frequencies, exclusive and instant TrackBack™ sonar history recall and compatibility with TotalScan™ all-in-one Skimmer® transducer providing CHIRP, StructureScan® HD and DownScan Imaging™. All Elite Ti models use proven high resolution imaging frequencies for StructureScan HD, DownScan Imaging and DownScan Overlay, both 455 AND 800 kHz for super-fine, incomparable detail. Only StructureScan HD imaging makes available the widest side scan range in fishing. With a max of 300 ft. to each side of the boat Elite-Ti is easier to use eliminating multiple passes. Spend less time idling and more time fishing with Elite Ti.
Superior networking features including NMEA 2000® (excluding Elite-5 Ti) and wireless connectivity that not only delivers a notification of new software, the Wi-Fi allows you to download software for the display and all connected NMEA 2000 devices. Elite Ti features onboard Service Assistant and Network Analyzer to send system reports, screenshots and software version information directly to Lowrance Customer Service via the built-in Wi-Fi service tools. Wi-Fi also connects you to the GoFree® Shop to upload sonar data directly to your Insight Genesis™ account to create custom mapping. Bluetooth® wireless provides remote access of C-Monster® controlled single or dual Power-Pole® installations directly from the Elite-Ti touchscreen.
The Elite Ti Series features a clean, rugged design. Just what you would expect from Lowrance. Matching great performance and exceptional features with easy-to-use operation.

I have just seen the replacement for HDS Gen 3 on a Danish site. It's called HDS Carbon and has build in Structurescan 3D
Here the link: http://www.marinetorvet.dk/viskatego...eMenuChild=134
unfortunately it's in Danish, but I guess that you can guess some of it.

Isn't Low and Simrad made by the same company? Just wondering whats the big difference in each sized MFD that makes the Lowrance way cheaper. Do these have the same main features as the same size Simrad? They would seem like a great value for the features you get.

Why is the same size 12 inch Simrad a lot more dinero? Just wondering thanks.

The Lowrance is Simrads baby brother. It will never have everything that the Simrad has in a current given year

The hds gen3 actually had more features than nss evo2. Nss has a sexier glass bridge look. The larger glass may add to cost.

Yea the Simrad has a nicer look for sure. The lowrance looks more fresh watery.But 1 grand difference for the same size screen is a lot.

Needing Motorguide Xi5 interface forces a lot of us to Lowrance. Never understood why they don't offer that on Simrad units.

Lowrance should step up their customer service and support along with announcing new gear.
The current program for support is pathetic.

3D Structurescan is not built in. It is being offered bundled in some of the options.
